Erath police are investigating a suspicious death.
According to police chief Gerald Hebert, Robert "Joey" Desormeaux was found in his sister's yard in the early-morning hours of September 12. Hebert says Desormeaux had gashes on his head, but they don't know if those marks came from a fall or from an assault. Desormeaux died Saturday of his injuries.
Hebert says an autopsy and toxicology tests have been performed to help him determine how Desormeaux died. The results of those tests are pending.
Anyone with any information about Desormeaux's death is asked to call the Erath Police Department at 337-937-5651.
